Foundation for Child Development Invites Proposals for Young Scholars Program Focusing on Immigrant Children
Deadline: November 1, 2005

Through the FCD Young Scholars Program (YSP), the Foundation for Child Development (<a href="http://www.fcd-us.org/">http://www.fcd-us.org/</a>), a private philanthropy dedicated to the principle that all families should have the social and material resources to raise their children to be healthy, educated, and productive members of their communities, provides approximately four fellowships of up to $150,000 each over a maximum period of three-years to study issues affecting the development of young immigrant children in the United States.

The program aims to stimulate basic and policy-relevant research focused on the early education, health, and well-being of immigrant children from birth to age ten, particularly those who are living in low-income families. FCD is particularly interested in research that can inform policies regarding the health and education needs of young newcomer children. Proposals may include research designs for an empirical study, pilot work for a larger-scale research project that will seek additional funding from other public and private funders, or analysis of data previously collected.

The fellowships will support individual scholarship by junior faculty who at the time of application are untenured or have received tenure within the past four years. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. or its equivalent in one of the behavioral and social sciences or in an allied professional field (e.g., public policy, public health, education, social work, nursing, medicine). Applicants must have earned their Ph.D. within the last fifteen years prior to June 30, 2005 (seven years from completion of residency for MDs). Applicants must be United States citizens, permanent residents, or international scholars who are affiliated with an American academic institution during the duration of the award.
